Electrical Aerators

We are proud to be the Ontario distributors of Otterbine Barebo aerators. Water quality management is a matter of pride at Otterbine Barebo. Otterbine has set the industry standards for aeration for more than 50 years. Their goal is to develop the most natural energy-efficient, versatile, technologically advanced and easy to use methods for treating water quality problems. Their dedicated team of engineers is continually seeking to improve and refine their existing products and exolore new possibilities in aeration. With over 100,000 Otterbine aerators in use today their return rate is less than 2%.

Otterbine Aerators provide natural solutions for your water quality problems by assisting in the biological breakdown of excessive nutrients in your pond or lake. By inducing oxygen into the water column Otterbine aerators support aerobic bacteria in consuming waste, fertilizer and other nutrient run-off that lead to algae blooms, foul odours and fish kills. Otterbine offers aeration and fountain systems from 1/6 HP to 25 HP in both surface and sub-surface configurations.

Aerators come in many sizes and shapes. Fitting an aerator to a pond is akin to fitting shoes to your feet - you don't want them to be too small or too big. The following is some of the more popular aerators that we distribute. They are all manufactured by Otterbine Barebo Inc. with the best warranty in the market place. All of these aerators are easy to set up - just plug them in! Most of these aerators are easy to set up.

Little Titan Aerator

Little Titan Aerator

The Little Titan aerator is ideal for ponds that are 1/4 acre in size. This 1/6 Hp aerator moves 120 gpm yet costs only about 25 ¢ a day to run (at current Hydro One rates). The spray height is 0.3 m (1 ft) and the spray diameter is 0.9 m (3 ft). They are equipped with 15 m (50 ft) of SJOOW underwater cable but additional cord lengths are available. While the 115 volt model is by far the most popular model but a 230 volt model is also available. Contact us for further info or visit www.otterbine.com.

Starburst Aerator

Starburst Aerator

The Starburst aerator is similar to the Little Titan in that it is a 1/6 Hp motor. However the Starburst sprays higher at 0.6 m (2 ft) and wider at 2.2 m (8 ft). The Starburst moves 99 GPM and is significantly quieter than the Little Titan. Cable length, operating costs, etc. are the same as for the Little Titan.

AquaSeries Aerator

AquaSeries Aerator

This newest addition to the Otterbine line was launched in 2004 and has proven to be quite popular. It is the next step up from the Little Titan and Starburst with a 1/4 Hp or 1/2 Hp motor. They are excellent aerators for ponds from ½ to 1 acre. They have two interchangable patterns - the AquaGem shown on the left and the AquaBlast in the inset. Most pond owners prefer the AqauGem setting. The spray height of a 1/4 Hp Aquagem is 0.9 m (3 ft) while the spray diameter is 2.1 m (7 ft). A two light set is also available. Lights are very useful feature as they attract a great number of insects. The insects are knocked down by the cascading water and become a source of food for your fish. It sounds unlikely, but the fish actually gravitate toward the fountain one the lights are on, knowing that food will soon be there! The 1/4 Hp comes with a 15m (50 ft) cord, while the 1/2 Hp has a 30 m (100 ft) cord.

Instant Fountain

Frequently specified in housing developments, commercial complexes, theme parks, golf courses and residential ponds, the Instant Fountain will present your waterbody with an added enhancement to be enjoyed by all onlookers. The Instant Fountain is ideal for ponds that are ½ to 1 acre in size and require both aeration and beauty. The Instant Fountain offers 3 easy to change patterns. Phenix, Starburst and Rocket. Pumping rates range from 80 to 125 gpm, spray heights of .8 m (2.5 ft) to 2.9 m (12 ft), and diameters of 0.6 m (2 ft) to 4.3 m (12 ft). A 3 light set is also available.


Koenders windmills provide ponds with a reliable air supply when there is a wind blowing. They are a low maintenance aeration option particularly suitable where hydro is inaccessible. 12, 16 or 20 foot windmills are available. 2 water pumping features are available, deep well and shallow pond. Koenders Windmills provide an alternative aeration solution.

Koenders Windmill is often all the maintenance you need to achieve quality water for a wide variety of applications from livestock, irrigation, spraying, gardening, fish farming, golf courses, Park Management, recreational use, Wastewater Management, even household use.

You can also significantly reduce the risk of West Nile Virus.

Preventative measures for the spread of West Nile begin with aeration of any stagnant water bodies. Koenders Aeration systems are a perfect fit for the job. Help save Human and Animal lives from this deadly disease whether on the Golf Course, or in your back yard pond.

  • Constant water circulation, will help disrupt the maturation cycle of the Mosquito
  • Safe, natural alternative for keeping our Mosquito population down

The Koenders Windmill's continuous production of air/oxygen is constantly fed to stagnant, unhealthy water - even during winter. This perpetual oxygen circulation ensures the entire body of water is maintained, healthy and won't deteriorate during any season.

Aquatic Weed Eradicator (AWE)

Aquatic Weed Eradicator

The Aquatic Weed Eradicator (AWE) is excellent for controlling lake and pond weeds. No need for dangerous and expensive chemicals - this rake is a bottom cutter; it removes weeds at their source. With a reinforced 28" serrated cutting blade, you don't have to worry about the blades bending under a heavy load of weeds. It comes with an 11' two-piece rust-proof powder-coated aluminum handle. 1. Skim the AWE across the water and let it sink. Retrieve in a short push-pull action. And drop the weeds off!
